About the Partner
npj Digital Medicine is part of the Nature Partner Journals series and is published by Springer Nature in partnership with Seoul National University Bundang Hospital.
The opening of the Seoul National University Bundang Hospital in 2003 was a milestone in the history of Korean medical care and medical education. As the first fully digitalized, paperless hospital in Korea, the adaptation to a CPOE (computerized physician order entry) system, then unfamiliar terminiology nationally and internatonally, was a breakthrough leap frog event in patient care.
Since its historic opening in 2003, SNUBH has established itself as a national and international leader by providing top class medical care in virtually every area of medicine and it has been the site of breakthrough research and education as one of the major teaching hospitals of the most prestigious medical school in Korea, Seoul National University, College of Medicine.
